For Sale R8,600,000 - House
Authentic Cape Dutch thoroughly modernised 1.3km to Bishops
The sort of character home you don’t come across every day – with unique features and generous rooms, and beautiful wooden windows and floors.
The current owners completely restored and renovated the entire home some years back – and since then she has housed foreign ambassadors and some high profile visitors. Each of the superb 4 upstairs bedrooms has its own modernised en-suite bathroom. The main bedroom has a full en-suite with double shower and corner bath – plus his and hers basins. Serving the children’s needs are 2 en-suites with bath only, and one fantastic mosaic-clad shower room en-suite. All bedrooms have built-in cupboards – the main bedroom with a walk-in closet and wood-burning fireplace. Most of upstairs is carpeted.
Downstairs there is a really generous formal lounge, also with fireplace and feature bay window, a separate TV/informal lounge with another fireplace and
2 sets of double French doors to pool and side patio, a formal dining room, study, and expansive eat-in kitchen with folding stacking doors to the pool and back courtyard.
The double garage is long and wide enough for cupboarding and workbenches – and there’s a separate laundry with a serious Hans Grohe water recycling plant automatically providing grey water to the house.
Most of the swimming pool area is paved – the pool does have a ‘solid’
cover. There’s plenty of garden space – and extra off-street parking.
Security consists of electric fencing, alarm with external beams, and you can slide a security gate to lock the upstairs. All of the opening windows have decent custom made burglar bars, and there are sliding security gates securing the double and the stacking doors.
The location is extremely convenient. Bishops/Rondebosch is less than 2km down the road – and you’d certainly walk to Newlands Cricket grounds and probably Kelvin. Woolworths and Pick n Pay are also literally minutes away, as are a number of great restaurants. In fact, you’re in one of the most central spots in the central Southern Suburbs. Even the airport is relatively easy to get to from here.
